Tea Auction Guide

The weekly Mombasa auction is at the centre of the tea trade in Kenya, and an important reference point for the global tea industry. It is the only centre where teas from different countries are sold alongside each other, and therefore helps to establish price levels and differentials for teas all over the world.
It is important to understand how the auction works, and this short guide is designed to help those visiting for the first time, and anyone else who needs a basic understanding.
